Celebrity Dominates Annual Conde Nast Traveler Readers' Survey



Constellation, Millennium, Summit, and Infinity Rank One Through Four, Respectively

MIAMI, FL – (January 20, 2006) – Within the same week of launching its major new “Celebrity Treatment” ad campaign, Celebrity Cruises received some celebrity treatment of its own. For the fourth consecutive year, the line swept Condé Nast Traveler’s annual readers’ survey ranking “The Best Cruise Ships in the World.”

In the large-ship category, Constellation, Millennium, Summit and Infinity ranked first through fourth, respectively. While Celebrity has held the majority of the top rankings in the annual survey since its inception, this is the first time the line has held every spot from one through four.

Galaxy (ranked seventh) and Mercury (ranked ninth) rounded out the top 10. Celebrity’s Century – which will undergo a $55-million revitalization in April of this year – earned a 12th-place ranking. Full survey results are published in the February edition of Condé Nast Traveler.

Celebrity reprised its 2005 sweep of the survey’s ratings in the category of food/dining, with Mercury, Millennium, Century and Galaxy shutting out the competition. Celebrity’s Constellation and Summit earned the first and third spots in the category of cabins, while Galaxy and Constellation ranked second and fourth for itineraries.

The informed subscribers of Condé Nast Traveler evaluated ships on five criteria: itineraries, crew/service, cabins/design, food/dining, and activities/excursions “Condé Nast Traveler’s annual readers’ survey is one of the most prestigious polls in the business, so this is particularly meaningful for us,” said Celebrity’s President Dan Hanrahan. “It is an enormous endorsement of the extraordinary service and experience we offer onboard.”
